How

How can I draw a map
if I’m afraid to look up
at the new landscape?
You can’t.

How do I embrace the new
if I’m having trouble
letting go of the old?
You don’t.

How am I going to move forward
if I’m secretly wishing
I could go back?
You won’t.

At times like this
my mom says to me,
“You know what you need to do.”
She’s right.
